as Stefan said already, the common API is in throttle.h.
It should be generic enough to be used in other parts of QEMU, but tell
me if you feel that it needs changes.
Once you configure the throttling settings you essentially only need to
call throttle_schedule_timer() to see if a request needs to be
throttled, and afterwards throttle_account() to register the I/O that
has been peformed.
You'll see that there's also throttle-group.c, but that's specific to
the block layer and not meant to be generic.
